The Grimdex is a tool that we developed to calculate the true cost of food. To do this, we measured the climate footprint savings of all the fruits and vegetables contained in each of our Eat Grim boxes. We’ve then printed these numbers on our packaging for the world to see.
Why did we do this? So you as a consumer can feel empowered to make sustainable choices by knowing exactly how much water, emission (CO2 equivalents, or CO2e) and land each box saves the environment compared to food you would buy elsewhere.
Calculating climate impact is a complex science and we haven’t nailed it completely - but we needed to start somewhere. Please note that the numbers on this page refer solely to the fruit and vegetables we’ve rescued to date and don’t reflect how our company has done as a whole. This means we also produce emissions in other parts of our supply chain, which are not yet accounted for. As a young business, we do our absolute best to make the most sustainable decisions, and as our business grows we promise to tackle other areas of our company to increase our positive impact on society – with you by our side!
